Get the most from you pineapple. Try recycling it into a houseplant. First, twist off the leafy top of the fruit and let it dry 1 week. Then, peel off the 4 bottom leaves. Place it in an 8-inch clay pot filled with 1⁄3rd sand and 2/3rds potting soil. Keep it slightly moist as overwatering causes rot and place it in a warm place with filtered light.Soon the plant will begin to grow anew. You may even see it produce another fruit which emerges from the top of the plant.
